As I enter my 5th year of blogging for myself, I realized that there are some things that every blogger should know. I also realized that it is tough to find everything in one...
Dinosaur Train Rides in During Dinosaur Week on GPB Beginning September 13th
My family and I were invited to the debut of Jim Henson's new show, “Dinosaur Train,” premiering this fall. We got to see a special advance screening of the show at the GPB Studios in Atlanta. Dinosaurs & Doughnuts featured crafts, facepainting, fabulous Krispy Kreme doughnuts and get introduced to a cool, new character named Buddy from Dinosaur Train.
I loved being in an actual television studio. It was amazing to see the show and to watch the faces of my children. I am still annoyed that I left my camera at home but I captured some cute shots on my cell phone.
My kids had the chance to ride a dinosaur train, eat as many doughnuts as their bellies would hold, create fossil crafts and so much more. They were exhausted but they loved the show and are anxiously awaiting the premiere.
On September 13-18, 2009, Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) will host Dinosaur Week, one week of dinosaur-themed programming for all ages featuring Jim Henson's new PBS Kids show, “Dinosaur Train.” The week begins on Sunday, September 13 with two special episodes of “Dinosaur Train,” at 9 AM and 10:30 AM.
Dinosaur Train celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains, while the adventures of its lovable star, a preschool-aged Tyrannosaurus Rex named Buddy, encourages basic scientific thinking and skills as the audience learns about natural science, natural history and paleontology.
Other Dinosaur Week highlights include PBS Kids favorites Curious George, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Barney and Friends and Sid The Science Kid running special dinosaur-themed episodes throughout the week; primetime shows beginning September 13 with David Attenborough's “Living with Dinosaurs” at 8 PM; and the popular IMAX attraction, “Dinosaurs Alive!” airing on Wednesday, September 16 at 8 PM.
